Student with red clown nose

Pinterest is the world’s catalogue of ideas. Helping you discover and do what you love. With endless lesson planning inspiration, kids activities, and educational resources, Pinterest is quickly becoming a go-to for teachers planning future classes, projects and workshops.

In the lead up to Red Nose Day, Pinterest and Comic Relief are inviting teachers to pin their fundraising ideas to Pinterest as part of our Teacher Fundraising contest. The prize? A visit to your school from a mystery celebrity!

Any teacher (on behalf of their school) in the UK can win.


All you have to do is:

1. Create a board called ‘Fundraising Ideas – Red Nose Day Contest’. Pin fundraising ideas to your board (this could be anything from kids craft activities and sponsored challenges to bake sale recipes) that you find inspirational.

2. In the board description, tell us how you hope to raise money for Red Nose Day.

3. Send us your board via this form here. Closing date Friday 10 March 2017.


Seeking some fundraising inspiration or ideas to pin? Head over to our ‘Red Nose Day Schools’ Pinterest page here

There will be some smaller weekly prizes too! Each week we’ll be sending out a Comic Relief plush and package of Pinterest goodies for a winning teacher (and their school).

Larger celebrity contest ends 10.03.2017. Pinterest and Comic Relief will choose the winner of the celebrity visit at random from all submissions.


Happy Pinning! Kate Allchin, UK Content & Community Manager.
